You "Ask", I Answer: Evaporated Cane Juice

[Evaporated cane juice] has the same energy content [as sugar] but its glycemic index is lower, meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar as much. It is healthier.

– Paul (last name unknown)
Via the blog

The glycemic index is the Paris Hilton of nutrition — it gets way more press and attention than it really deserves.

Firstly, the difference between sugar and evaporated cane juice’s glycemic index number isn’t too drastically different.

Besides, relying on the glycemic index to determine what foods are healthy (the lower the number, “the better”) is not entirely accurate.

If you go by that criteria, potato chips (with a GI number of 51) are a better food than watermelon (72), unsweetened oatmeal (58), lentils (52), or kidney beans (52).

The glycemic index is an important tool for people living with diabetes, whose blood sugar needs to be meticulously controlled.

However, it should not be used to determine the healthfulness of foods.

Remember, too, that the glycemic index of a food is affected by how it is consumed.  Al dente pasta, for example, has a lower glycemic index than overcooked pasta.  Similarly, a potato topped with olive oil and eaten with a food high in protein has a lower glycemic effect than one sprayed with fat-free artificial butter and unaccompanied by any other food.

    question:

    nutritionally speaking, what is the “best” jelly to pair with my natural PB? i buy smucker’s “Simply Fruit” blackberry because it seems to have less sugar and a reasonable amount of calories (40 per Tbsp.). are all jellies considered discretionary calories, though?

    great blog! thanks!
